|NEWS AND SUCH
New songs and any notable happenings are usually first posted on the
facebook these days, so consider yourself invited to "like"
Fiberoctopus if you have interest. To a lesser extent, there's
Fiberoctopus was born
prematurely in San Diego, March 2001: Gavin (guitar and vocals), Chris (bass), and a crappy
drum machine (beats).. the band practiced just 2 or 3 times before going on an
extended hiatus. Then in early 2005, Fiberoctopus was reborn for 3 months or so,
but this time with Chris on drums. In May 2006, Gavin went ahead and resurrected
Fiberoctopus as a solo project. Roughly a year later, Chris rejoined on bass,
and was soon joined by newcomer Karie (additional vocals and accessories).
Finally coming to life as a "real band," Fiberoctopus began playing live in the
summer of 2007, all the while Gavin also still did solo recording under the
name. Health problems forced Chris to bow out at the end of 2007. Right about
that time, John the drummer joined. The revamped lineup of Gavin, Karie, and
John practiced some new and old
songs for a few months, but ended up splitting before ever performing live. This
was the middle of 2008. Fiberoctopus then reverted to being pretty much a solo
project. Karie started recording songs under the name LipstiK On a Pig. Gavin
moved to Portland, Oregon in March 2009, where he continues to record as
Fiberoctopus, occasionally collaborating over the internet with Karie.
Anybody in Portland want to jam?
Want a live performance by Fiberoctopus at your gig, party, or social function
within reasonable driving distance of Portland, Oregon? Let me know.
I would also love to get into film scoring and stuff like that, if any indie
filmmakers out there happen to be looking for somebody cheap to give a shot at
scoring their project.
